Ex 13.1 | Question 1

## Text Solution

What is Known?

Parking charges for different hours.

What is Unknown?

Parking charges are direct proportion to the parking time or not.

Reasoning:

If two quantities are related in such a way that an increase in one lead to a corresponding proportional increase in the other, then such a variation is called direct variation.

Steps:

The parking charge for $$1$$ hour in all the four cases then the variation is direct.

We have:

\begin{align}\frac{{60}}{4}&=\frac{{15}}{1}\\&=15\\ \\ \frac{{100}}{8}&=\frac{{25}}{2}\\ &= 12.5\\ \\ \frac{{140}}{{12}} &=\frac{{35}}{3}\\&=11.67 \\ \\\frac{{180}}{{24}}&=\frac{{15}}{2}\\&= 7.50\end{align}

Since all the values are not the same, the parking charges are not in direct proportion to parking times.
